Steelers trade for K Josh Scobee
The Steelers quest to find a healthy kicker has led them to trade for one.
According to Jeff Prosser of 1010XL in Jacksonville, Josh Scobee is already en route to the Steelers.
Scobee was the longest-tenured Jaguars player, having worked for them since 2004, when he was chosen in the fourth round. They’re now handing the job to rookie Jason Myers.
The Steelers lost Shaun Suisham to a torn ACL in the preseason opener, and replacement Garrett Hartley suffered a hamstring injury Saturday that looked like it was going to keep him out of the regular season opener.
Now the Steelers have a reliable veteran in the last year of his contract, giving them some stability at the position going into the season. Scobee should climb the rankings and get lots of chances in what is expected to be a high-powered offense.
